Maintaining Healthy Lives with Pet Wellness Exams in Altamonte Springs, FL

While keeping your four-legged family member healthy certainly begins with you, you don’t have to manage everything on your own. With the pet wellness exams we provide here in Altamonte Springs, you can stay up to speed with your dog’s or cat’s treatments and help them stay protected from diseases they might encounter in their lifetime.

Wellness exams are similar to routine checkups for humans--they give Dr. Matagrano the opportunity to “check in” with you and your pet, evaluate their health, and discuss any issues or changes that might have taken place. They also generally involve routine parasite screens (blood and fecal testing) and vaccinations.

What’s Included in a Wellness Exam?

When you bring in your pet for their wellness exam, you can always expect us to be thorough. Since dogs and cats are unable to verbalize their feelings, it’s up to us to decode every clue we can get (be it unusual behavior, changes in appearance, or abnormal test results) to understand their health and accurately diagnose any problems they have. Even a small change can progress into something bigger, so we leave no stone unturned.

During your pet’s routine exam, you can expect us to cover:

  • Any questions you have about your pet’s condition, behavior, or lifestyle
  • The physical exam, where we check your pet’s heart, lungs, ears, eyes, mouth, abdomen, skin and coat, and limbs/joints
  • Blood and stool checks to screen for parasites, infection, and abnormal organ function
  • Deworming (if needed) and parasite prevention
  • Nutritional and behavioral counseling

Why Dogs and Cats Require Year-Round Pest Prevention

Heartworms, fleas, and ticks are tiny but mighty, unfortunately for us! They flourish in warm weather conditions and love using our pets as hosts for their survival and propagation. Because these nasty critters are active all year round and thus pose a year-round threat, it’s necessary to give your pet complete, year-round protection with the appropriate parasite preventatives. Our clinic offers a variety of cat and dog parasite preventatives here in house, so be sure to reach out to us if you need to get started or refill your pet’s prescription!
